The royals: blue and purple!

*Edit* I know these colors are beautiful but I just found out that Calypso Minerals has been taking people's money and not sending them the products they've ordered.  So please don't order from them!  I don't know about dupes for all of the colors but Glamour Doll Eyes has a color called "Mingles" which is a good dupe for "True Blue".  I'm so sorry!*

I wanted to do something fun and colorful but wasn't sure what to do.  I really like the way matte shadows look when you put glitter on top of them so that's what I went for.  Unfortunately, I don't have anything that properly adheres loose glitter to my skin so it didn't stick that well and you really can't see it in pictures.  But whatev, here's what I did!

Holla!  I used false lashes!
What I used:
NYX JEP "Milk"
Calypso Minerals (C.M.) "True Blue"
C.M. "Grape Pop"
C.M. "Matte Violet"
Kat Von D "Peanut" for highlight
C.M. Purple glitter
MAC "Blacktrack" fluidline
L'oreal Voluminous Carbon Black mascara
Fright Night "Sorceress" lashes (from Halloween sales)

And now I can't remember what I have on my lips in this picture haha.  Sorry!  

I posted a cute picture of my Sullivan and me yesterday but then last night I walked into my living room and my daughter was cuddling with him and I got this picture of them.  It's a favorite!  They're so darn cute together!
Yes, he's a pitbull but he's AMAZING with my daughter.  He bounces on my husband and me but he doesn't bounce on her.  He'll nibble on my hands but he doesn't nibble her.  He's so gentle with her it's amazing because gentle isn't really in his vocabulary haha.  They're little buddies.  I may have to tell him "sit" like 3 times for him to listen to me, she has to tell him once.  I just think they're the cutest little duo.

But enough of that.  Tomorrow is Thanksgiving and I hope that you all have a great day!  I hope you get to spend it with family (if that's something you enjoy doing haha) and just enjoy the day!!  I'm thankful for you guys!  So thankful!  Having this blog really pushes me to do my makeup more and to practice different things. I know my skills have grown since I started and I definitely have you guys to thank for that!!
